BB Centrum – Building A

The building with an H-shaped footprint rises up from a rectangular base. An offset glass façade with an acknowledged loadbearing structure protects the building against the noise from the motorway and the busy street. The main entrance opens to bottom of the atrium cascading up through the all stories. At the top, the atrium opens to the light that flows down through the whole building like a waterfall. The building’s appearance is clear and unified; it plays more with light than materials and it may resemble factories, but for white-collars workers.  Natural and artificial light is mixed in the multi-storey lobby without any discernible relationship to the daytime or night. The while amoeba of the reception counter embraced by strict horizontals and verticals dominates the space by its soft roundness evoking memories of various parts of human body.
